Servodriven injection molding machine promises lower energy consumption than standard hybrids
from Plastics Today
A three-phase induction motor and a variable capacity piston pump allow a new series of injection molding machines to reportedly consume less energy than hybrid systems, and up to 40 percent less power than conventional hydraulic systems. Mitsubishi's MMX Series feature what the company calls the Smart Hybrid Hydraulic System wherein a highly responsive servomotor stabilizes hydraulic oil flow and pressure to save energy. In addition, the simplified piping configuration enables reduced maintenance and enclosed pumping cuts down on noise emissions.
